Intern Spotlight: Introducing Nicole!

Hello beautiful people!

I am super excited to be the new intern at Marisa Nicole Events and would love to introduce myself to you all! Here is a little Q&A so you can get a taste of who I am my wedding style….

  • Favorite Wedding Blog: I love Style Me Pretty because there are endless weddings to look at for ideas and you can even search them by color scheme!
  • Describe the Perfect Wedding Cake Flavor Combo: I am obsessed with red velvet cake and cream cheese frosting!
  • Favorite Styling Genre for Event Design: I love the soft and romantic looks with sweeping floral displays and elegant details.  I have flowers all over my room and couldn’t imagine my favorite styling genre without them!
  • Event Planning Super Hero Skill: To be able to get anything done within five minutes! Could you imagine if the whole wedding was set up in five minutes? I would have so much free time to enjoy the beautiful day with the happy couple!
  • Veil, Flower or Headpiece?: Definitely a veil, if I can have my way (and not overuse flower details) then I would want hand sewn light flowers to the end of a long veil.
  • Favorite Wedding Tradition: My absolute favorite part of weddings is when you get to hear the speeches. I enjoy nothing more than hearing funny stories about the bride or groom and listening to someone talk about a loved one is always heartwarming!
  • The moment in every wedding that never fails to bring you to tears: When the couple shares their personal vows. There is no better example of what love means!

I hope you enjoyed learning a bit about me and that we share some similarities. Feel free to comment some of your favorites below and I’ll see you around on the blog and on Instagram.


Happy Holidays from Our Family to Yours!

New Trends in Town: Fall 2018 Bridal Fashion Week

Hey darlings!

Bridal fashion week has come and gone and our hearts are a flutter thinking about the gorgeousness that is coming our way next wedding season. Today we’re here to show you some of the top styles to inspire all you ladies out there who still searching for the perfect gown for your wedding! Designers have introduced new trends and brought back some of our favorites. Here are the top 5 fashion trends that we found in Fall 2018’s Bridal Fashion Week. Enjoy!

Trend #1: Off-the-shoulder sleeves

Off-the-shoulder sleeves are back! We just can’t get over the elegance of this style and apparently neither can anyone else. Off-the-shoulder sleeves of any kind will soften your neckline, having you look gorgeous as you walk down the aisle.

Trend #2: Ballgowns

Whether it’s sweet and simple or intricate and detailed, the ballgown is a classic. This trend will never fail to make a bride feel like a princess on one of the happiest days of her life!

Trend #3: Capes

Veils are out, and capes are in! With capes as the new trend, you can rock a gorgeous hair-do while also adding extra flare to your already stunning dress.

Trend #4: Blush tones

Blush tones are so pretty, yet still neutral and will make you stand apart from the white color that most brides are accustom to wearing. What can we say? Pink is the new white.

Trend #5: Pantsuits

Men aren’t the only one’s who can rock pants on their wedding day. It’s time to step away from traditional wedding dresses. Pantsuits are not only functional and easier to manage, but they are also classy and chic for any of your wedding occasions.

We hope these fashion trends in the Fall 2018 Bridal Fashion Week will give you some inspiration for your future wedding dress. Stay fabulous, lovelies!


Intern Spotlight: Introducing Cortney!

Hi friends!

This is Cortney, one of the new additions to the team! I’m so excited to be given the opportunity to work with Marisa and learn anything and everything that has to do with wedding planning. To kick off my time with MNE, here’s a little bit about myself for you guys to get to know me better…

  • Favorite Wedding Blog: Style Me Pretty! I love the “Planning & Advice” section because it has information on anything you need to know about your wedding. I also love the Vault that has an endless number of pictures from real weddings to use for your own wedding inspiration.
  • Describe the Perfect Wedding Cake Flavor Combo: Vanilla cake with strawberry flavored icing or vice versa. I think the strawberry adds a hint of flavor that makes a simple vanilla cake just perfect!
  • Favorite Styling Genre for Event Design: Not to be cliché, but I would have to say that a Romantic style wedding is my favorite. I love the color combinations of white, pastels, and greenery. These colors can make the wedding look aesthetically B-E-A-Utiful!
  • Event Planning Super Hero Skill: Being at the right place at the right time. I know how to scope out the scene and recognize exactly where I am needed.
  • Veil, Flower or Headpiece?: All of them! I think the perfect headpiece would be a beautiful flower crown with a veil trailing behind. Why shouldn’t the bride look like a queen on her big day?
  • Favorite Wedding Tradition: The couple’s first dance. I think the song is a good indicator of the couple’s connection with one another. It makes it all the more special when they are able to make that connection in front of all the people they love.
  • The moment in every wedding that never fails to bring you to tears: When the couple is announcing their vows and the groom is trying not to cry. It’s the most heartwarming thing to see a couple cry of joy for being able to spend the rest of their lives with their partner.

That’s just some information about me. I’ll be around for the next few months; so if you see me around, don’t hesitate to say hi!
